Crufts Art Win for Year 8 Student

Rosie’s poster design

One of our year 8 students has won third place in a poster competition run by the YKC Young Kennel Club and has been presented with a prize at the world-famous Crufts show.

Rosie, who is a member of the Kennel Club, entered the competition after seeing it advertised in the club magazine.  The YKC Artist of the Year brief was to produce a design to promote crossbreed dogs; these are dogs from two different pedigree parents.

“I based the design on three dogs with a trophy above them.  One of the dogs is my dog which is a crossbreed cockerpoo (a cross between Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle) called Milo,” said Rosie.

Work for the poster started off with pencil sketches which Rosie changed around a bit until she was happy with the layout.  Rosie said: “The finished poster was a combination of pencil, pens and paint.”  She sent off the poster at the end of 2018 and forgot all about it.  In February 2019 there was a reply from the Kennel Club telling her of the third place win for her effort.

A member of the Kennel Club awarded the prize to Rosie during the Crufts show in early March when she received a rosette, art materials and £30.  “It was very exciting and I was given an enlarged presentation version of my artwork,” said Rosie.

Congratulations to Rosie on her success and of course, well done Milo!
